We mamas are frugalistas and proud of it. We love getting deals and don't usually buy expensive clothes, but I have to admit I spent $70 on a nursing bra recently.
Is that a lot of money to anyone else?
I rarely shop at Nordstrom, but went there on the recommendation of another mom after being frustrated with not being able to find a good nursing bra (as a fuller-breasted mama, it is really hard to find one with good combo of support and coverage). I was sized and fitted and got a really great (albeit granny-looking) bra. And though I might be able to buy three bras for $70 elsewhere, I think it was worth it.
I originally was going to call this post "Indulgences," but changed my mind because I don't think a good bra (or several good bras) is an indulgence; it is a building block of good fashion, comfort and self-image!
I also once paid a lot of money for a pair of jeans (Oprah said this particular brand can make anyone look good!) and maybe a pair or two of shoes--and I think that's okay! That's why we scrimp and save, right? So we can splurge for the things that we really want--and dare I say, deserve.
What have you splurged on that you don't regret?
